    OR
    What about a Police trade in 229, then put the rest towards the Kimber?

    too late Ended up layawaying the 229. It's so sexxy. :o I didn't notice the extra weight that much.

    both are nice, i'm a fan of sigarms, but my dad and brother both have kimber carry's (pro carry and ultra CDP). Both are nice, but i like the kimber more for carry due to size

    Looks like a cross between a SIG, 1911 and a CZ. Guess they saw how well their own 1911 sales has been. Like the ambi highride safety and beavertail. Good points in that thread though. 2000 dollars, single action, beavertail, high ride thumb safeties. It may look nice, but I would rather just buy a sweet 1911 and have 1000 bucks left over.

    I think both guns are too heavy for daily carry, but the SIG is easier for me to conceal.

    I hope Sig never lowers themselves to that standard.

    Considering the price of brand new classic model Sigs, I'm guessing the X-Five is gonna have a pretty heft price tag.

    Nevermind price has already been covered. :hs:
